The umbilical cord tissue contains important growth factors including, cytokines, and mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs). Various clinical trials using cord-derived MSCs are being conducted to treat conditions like autism, diabetes, cirrhosis of the liver, and multiple sclerosis. Cryopreserved umbilical cord tissue containing cells has a wide range of new clinical applications in surgery.

Some blood banks limit future therapy choices by concentrating primarily on the MSCs and pre-processing them before cryopreservation. By maintaining the naturally occurring multipotent cells, growth factors, and cytokines in umbilical cord tissue, PureCord’s processing technology maximises the tissue’s potential. With this technique, families have the option of employing cord tissue containing MSCs for surgical procedures on their newborns, siblings, parents, or grandparents or cord tissue produced from the cord for therapeutic purposes.

What is an Umbilical Cord?

During pregnancy, the umbilical cord has a significant function. It controls the provision and delivery of nutrients and oxygen to the baby and any waste removal. The cord, which resembles a tube, attaches the foetus to the mother via the placenta.

Stem Cells found in Cord Tissue

1, Cord Lining – CLSCs – Epithelial cord lining stem cells.

2, Endothelium – HUVECs – Human umbilical vein endothelial cells

3, Wharton’s Jelly – MSCs & UCMs – Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Umbilical Cord Matrix

4, Perivascular Region – HUCPVs – Human umbilical vein perivascular cells

5, Cord Blood – HSCs, MSCs, & VSELs – Haematopoietic stem cells. Mesenchymal Stem Cells. Very small embryonic-like stem cells

PureCord™ collects up to twice as many stem cells as the industry standard.

PureCord™ collects up to twice as much Cord Blood as the industry standard.

The Umbilical Cord Contains
What Types of Cells?

  • Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs)
  • Growth factors
  • Cytokines
  • And other important cells

What Are Mesenchymal Stem Cells?

Mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs), a distinct type of stem cell which is found in the umbilical cord are not present in cord blood. The MSCs can be found in Wharton’s jelly and are multipotent cells. Multipotent cells mean that they can differentiate into a variety of cell types, resulting in the creation of tissues such as skin, bone, cartilage, nerves, and muscles.

MSCs Cord Tissue

Clinical Trials Using Cord Tissue

Hundreds of research projects are now studying cord-derived MSCs:
  • ALS
  • Alzheimer’s
  • Arthritis
  • Autism
  • Cerebral Palsy
  • Chrone’s Disease
  • Diabetes
  • Liver Cirrhosis
  • Multiple Sclerosis
  • Parkinson’s

Surgery Using Cord Tissue Stem Cells

In several clinical trials, cord tissue made up of cells, growth factors, and cytokines are being investigated for use in surgery:
  • Cartilage Repair
  • General Surgery
  • Orthopaedic Surgery
  • Tendon Repair
  • Urology

Cord Tissue Vs. Cord Blood

The umbilical cord, which contains MSCs, growth factors, and cytokines, is preserved in cord tissue banking rather than cord blood banking, which collects the hematopoietic stem cells (HSCs) found in the cord blood.
Cord blood can treat:

Immune-deficiency Disorders

Blood Diseases

Cancers

Cord tissue Trials For:

Lung Cancer

Heart Disease

Liver Disease

Parkinson’s Disease

Injuries to Bone & Cartilge

Type 1 Diabetes

Is banking Cord Tissue worth it?

Future therapeutic options are constrained by the MSC-only focus of many blood banks, who pre-process the MSCs before cryopreservation. PureCord has created a novel, new processing technique in order to stay abreast of current developments in regenerative medicine.

Umbilical cord tissue can be used to its full capacity thanks to PureCord’s cord tissue processing technique. The procedure makes use of a minimally invasive technique to preserve the cord tissue’s natural multipotent cells, growth factors, and cytokines.

In order to ensure the possibility of many uses or applications, the cord tissue is subsequently cryopreserved as a membrane containing living cells and bioactive ingredients and kept in several vials. The cryopreserved cord tissue can be processed in the future utilising cutting-edge cell isolation techniques or utilised for surgical applications. Families may rest well knowing that PureCord’s cord tissue processing provides clinicians and patients with the freedom to employ the cord tissue stem cells for a variety of therapeutic purposes.
